Canal and River Levées covers the basic ideas of canal embankments and levées calculation and layout. Canal embankments and levées are among the world's oldest hydroengineering
structures. This e-book is split into seven chapters that target fixing the issues of defending keep watch over levees, which often referred to as anti-flood or anti-inundation dykes.

The commencing bankruptcy surveys the final difficulties of dam layout and building. the subsequent chapters take care of the elemental features, selection, experimental equipment, and calculations of seepage, in addition to the steadiness calculations and embankment payment. those subject matters are via discussions of the neighborhood stipulations and calls for when it comes to the development of embankments and their a number of concrete constructions. different chapters discover the necessities of energy- and irrigation-canal sealing and the subsoil safety of levees. The final bankruptcy seems into the measurements, common standards, and remark of dams and levees.

This e-book is meant essentially for civil engineering designers.
